Track Name: Bad Boy Nick
[Verse 1]

Sitting in the pocket of the paradigm
Dancing to the beat, or jamming, I don't mind
Bee-Bop-A-Lula's gonna cast her spell
on the funky monks in the citadel

Sipping to the finger trigger of James Bond
Bad Boy Nick is gonna keep his just as long
as Nikola Tesla gets the grade
To be the only one that saves

(Oh, and I wonder)

[Verse 2]

One, two, run gotta get away
Mama Lue-Belle's coming out to play
She always seems to read between the lines
where the who is what, and the where is why
Bitter old friends seem to decay
when the music turns on they turn away
So we're only left with you and him
my mother's brother and the seven sins

[Chorus]

I don't know where I could find
A place that sells positive vibes
Give me a time, and a place to meet
and I know I'll be complete

[Verse 3]

Get up go, it's a brand new day
But it's been lonely since you've been away
and I haven't seemed to make amends
with the Morris Dancers and their stoner friends
Take my cut of the cash we've made
I don't want to be the only blame
See, I'm only into paper notes
so please just leave, and don't evoke.

[Chorus]

I don't know where I could find
A place that sells positive vibes
Give me a time, and a place to meet
and I know I'll be complete

[Acoustic Chorus]

I don't know where I could find
A place that sells positive vibes
Give me a time, and a place to meet
and I know I will I'll be complete

[Chorus]

I don't know where I could find
A place that sells positive vibes
Give me a time, and a place to meet
and I know I'll be complete

[Bridge]

Let it shine, don't let it go
It's to be seen but not to show
I know where you can find
a place that sells our positive vibes (x2)

[Chorus]

I don't know where I could find
A place that sells positive vibes
Give me a time, and a place to meet
and I know I'll be complete
Track Name: Forest of Doubt
I don't answer a knock at my door
and I just leave it for tomorrow
There's dead leaves left on the floor
Broken hearts that I still follow

[Chorus]

I'm running through the trees
Screaming "I'm free, I'm free"
Our sun rose out of lies
and now our flame has surely died

[Verse 2]

She filled the clouds with her broken, black rain
Soliloquies of Shakespeare's pain
I put myself in a cave she seized
In a darkened wood encased in trees

[Chorus]

I'm running; can't you see?
Screaming "I'm free, I'm free"
Our sun rose out of lies
and now our flame has surely died

[Bridge]

I can't believe I couldn't see
One year you were poisoning me
One year with disease x4

[Verse 3]

I set the coordinates for the final location
I was numb and your explanation
To reasons why we we're far apart
was backing arrogance from the start

[Chorus]

I'm running through the trees
Screaming "I'm free, I'm free"
Our sun rose out of lies
and now our flame has surely died

[Breakdown]

It's for me or you, it's for you to choose
I could stay or be gone for you x4

[Chorus]

I'm running through the trees
Screaming "I'm free, I'm free"
Our sun rose out of lies
and now our flame has surely died out
Running can't you see?
Screaming "I'm free, I'm free"
Our sun rose out of lies
and now our flame has surely died.
Track Name: Cover Me (I'm Going In)
Had a dream, and it felt so right
Loving you's my only light, yeah
Contaminated, epoxied my sight
Established martyr, publicity kite

[Pre-Chorus]

I see you baby
Just walking around
What we had won't hide this "X" on the ground

[Chorus]

So why, why, why, why
Why won't you see, babe
You know, know, know that it's true
When you pass by me I get this feeling
When you hear this song, you know it's for you

[Verse 2]

Like I'm tripping and my body's slipping straight through your lies
Integrated fragments laced with fatal delights
20/20 vision never blocked out my sight

[Pre-Chorus]

I see you lady
Just walking around
What we had won't hide this "X" on the ground

[Bridge]

and I don't wanna know
(I don't wanna, wanna know)
Come and steal the show
(Come out and see me! Come and steal the show)
It's getting harder, and harder, but there's no disaster
Bending out of reach
Oh, you're sucking on my brain
You're a sodding leach

[Chorus]

So why, why, why, why
Why won't you see, babe
You know, know, know that it's true
When you pass by me I get this feeling
When you hear this song, you know it's for you(x2)
Track Name: Half Locked Doors
I see your words gun through me, feel them burn
You think I'm lazy, that I should have learned
Take a look at mine and you may find
I know a place were light can't shine
I've been here for years and not come out
She thinks I'm lazy that I'm worst set-out
That I don't listen I am just a pawn
That these scars wash off if you scrub hard

[Verse 2]

I feel no worry, I'm a social toy
A daydream-lover, but it's all a ploy
A walking compact who can't seem to think
as I wash the pain down with a drink
Time after time I sing these lines
Hoping in the end I'll turn out fine
We're all just lovers in a masquerade
a lonely player upon a stage

[Chorus]

Kiss me
Tell me just what you need
Give me
You know that you will receive
I've mastered
a face as cold as ice
Read me
and you will have to read twice

(Alright, Alright, Alright)

[Verse 3]

It's going down and crashing to the floor
It wasn't me who wanted moral war
But people pick and choose opposing sides
and leave the innocent standing double-blind
but as the truth comes out the fog does clear
Saboteurs amongst the hidden seers
It's just a game that we all like to play
destroying confidence day by day

[Verse 4]

A boat came down and carried me ashore
There was no pain in my heart anymore
I know that grace forgives and washes clean
all the pain that had once smitten me
The people sing and laugh hoorah, hoorah
The only thing that stops is a locked jaw
So carry me to my own promised land
and burden me no more I take your hand!

[Chorus]

Kiss me
Tell me just what you need
Give me
You know that you will receive
I've mastered
a face as cold as ice
Read me
and you will have to read twice(x2)

Kiss me!
